  1. An alleged defamatory oral statement;
  2. That the plaintiff committed a crime, has contracted a loathsome disease, that a woman is unchaste, or an allegation must be one which would tend to injure the plaintiff or his trade, business, profession, or office; and
  3. Proximate cause and damges.
